When Bukayr heard of this, he sent to Bahir with an offer of reconciliation, but the latter.  Husayn al-Dabbi came to see him, saying, "It seems to me that you are being very foolish. Here your clansman35 sends you an apology, when you are his captive and the sword is in his hand, and if he killed you a goat wouldn't fart over you36yet you will not accept it from him!  Al-Mada'ini.  170 [786]), the noted philologist and compiler of the Mufaddaliyyat; see GAl I, 116.  The remainder of this paragraph seems anticipatory, and the reason for Bukayr's dismissal follows in the next; Ibn al-Athir in his summary (Kamil, IV, 367) reverses them.

See also Ibn A`tham al-Kufi, Futuh, VII, 5; Mubarrad, Kamil, 215; Maydani, Amthal, I, 28.  A version of this proverb appears in Maydani, Amthal, II, 35, where "she" is glossed as "disaster" (dahiyah).  If I find any man from al-Muhallab's expedition still here after three days, I will spill his blood and seize his property.

After crushing a mutiny by the Basran forces, he prosecuted the Azraqite war with vigor, until dissension among the Azraqites themselves, perhaps between Arabs and non-Arabs, made possible their final and total defeat. Meanwhile, another group of Kharijites, small but pertinacious, harried Iraq itself, first under Salih b. Musarrih, then under Shabib b. Yazid.
